Not a very good trip at all.

Sail Date: March 17, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The entertainment was absolutely terrible. I have been on several Carnival cruises and the evening shows were MUCH better than on this cruise. On the 1st night I don't even think there was a show. Additionally, I don't think there was a midnight buffet on one of the nights which is usually something to look foward to. My friends and I are all in our mid 30's but about 80% of the passengers were teenagers on Spring Break. The 2nd day, I got horrible food poisoning from some lamb curry that kept me in the bathroom every 20 minutes. I contacted the corporate headquarters and they basically blew me off. I will never sail Royal Carribean cruiseline again. :-(

Pros: Going home.

Cons: Getting food poisoning

Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
The evening dining room food was good. The rest of the food I really wasn't pleased with. I did not enjoy getting food poisoning for lunch.
Not enough to do. Evening entertainment was not very good.
Ship Quality
Old ship. Not alot to do onboard.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Coco-cay was nice. Weather was great. Quite pricey on the activities but the layout was enjoyable.
Nassau, Bahamas
Bahamas was ok. I've been a few times. We went to the beach and laid out near the Atlantis. It was a nice day.
